Please see below the 2018 / 2019 course descriptions:
Course: Comparative Employment Law
Professor: Nancy Modesitt (University of Baltimore, School of Law)
Description: Comparative Employment Law explores selected topics in Employment Law and compares the approaches taken in the United States with those taken in selected countries in Europe (including the United Kingdom). The course explores the policies underlying doctrinal approaches and requires students to critically assess approaches taken in different countries. Topics covered include an employer’s right to terminate employees, privacy rights of employees, employment discrimination protections, sexual harassment, undocumented workers, worker exploitation, and the “gig” economy’s impact on employment.
Course: Import / Export Law
Professor: Juliana Campagna (Hofstra University, School of Law)
Description: The terms “import” and “export” appear side by side in business. In law, however, different laws govern each one. Different agencies have regulatory and enforcement jurisdiction over each. Different policies underpin each one. Whereas all three branches of government play active roles in import law, export law is governed almost exclusively by the executive.
